A bright, lush green jade stone is held within the face of this exquisite ring, bearing a smooth cabochon surface, and an open back setting to be easily illuminated by light. This stunning ring bears stylistic features typical of the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, marked by intricate, hand-made designs free of autonomous machine work, either by a jewelry maker who designed and built the piece, or by both the designer and maker working closely together. These features can be seen in the intricate, detail-ladened sculptural openwork of the 14k yellow gold, its bright sunny luster accenting the subtle intaglio details of sweeping floral and leaf motifs in the ring head and shoulders. The ring bears a simple yet elegant shank, and in excellent condition, this jade 14k gold ring would make a fine addition to your collection.
